17 Reality TV Shows You Don’t Admit You Watch

You know that reality show you love – the one you make fun of with your friends, but secretly watch? Don’t be ashamed! We all have guilty pleasure shows that we don’t confess to watching. But if it’s a show you really enjoy, there’s nothing to feel guilty about. Reality TV is inherently entertaining – people fighting and creating unnecessary drama is fun to watch. Whether you can’t get enough of The Real Housewives or have seen every season of Teen Mom, it’s time to come clean. You’re not alone.

1. Keeping Up with the Kardashians


Can you believe there was a time when we didn’t know who Kim, Khloé and Kourtney were? We’ll follow the antics of this crazy family forever. Like Kim’s Paper Magazine cover.

2. The Real Housewives


New Jersey, Beverly Hills, Atlanta, it doesn’t matter. As long as there are rich people fighting, you’re there.

3. Catfish


This show taught us all the importance of Google Image Search, and to not trust anyone without a webcam. Also, the bromance between Nev and Max is pretty great.

4. The Challenge


Hot people getting drunk, hooking up, and doing ridiculous things for money! What’s not to love?

5. The Bachelor/Bachelorlette


You know that almost every couple that comes out of this show is doomed to fail, but you can’t stop watching.

6. Naked and Afraid


It’s riveting to watch two strangers try to survive together in the harshest of conditions. Also, butts. (Ok, this is actually Kirsten Bell parodying the show.)

7. Toddlers and Tiaras


With all the makeup, sparkles and outrageous costumes, you are really glad you didn’t have a stage parent.

8. Dance Moms


Same as above, but you’re also in awe of how talented the young dancers are.

9. Pawn Stars


It’s a show your dad would watch, but it brings out your inner history nerd.

10. America’s Next Top Model


Admit it: you’ve practiced your smize in the mirror before.

11. Hell’s Kitchen


Gordon Ramsay’s constant cursing and yelling at people never gets old.

12. Long Island Medium


You’ve shed a tear or two watching Teresa connect people with their loved ones.

13. Rupaul’s Drag Race


These queens have the fiercest outfits, and know how to throw shade like none other. 

14. Teen Mom


All the baby mama drama you could possibly want.

15. The Real World


The original “strangers picked to live in a house” show is still going strong.

16. Big Brother


This game takes some real strategy to win, and it’s fun watching all the twists and turns. There’s nothing else to watch during the summer, anyway.

17. Bad Girls Club


There’s never a quiet moment in the Bad Girls house.

So be honest about the shows you watch! Your friends probably like them too.
